Another Antarctica!

AntarcticaPenguinsThis beautiful card comes from Dieter in Germany and I can’t believe how lucky I am to receive it! He tells me that he worked in the O’Higgins (German) Scientific Base in Antarctica in 1997 as an operator at the 9m radiotelescope which receives data about the Earth’s rotation and movement of its tectonic plates. He has also sent me a link to a site where you can watch the penguins on a webcam between November and January. To make this card even better, it even has old rubber ink stamp prints on it from Dieter’s base! LOVE this card!
